Supernatural Beings
Hello! Welcome to the fifth edition of Supernatural Beings! My name is Bernard Min, your little half-angel and your host for this blog article! If this is your first time reading this, this article serves to share knowledge to all of you about supernatural beings in the TV show itself as well as comparing it with real-life lores and legends! In a meantime, there are a lot of beings and stories the show hadn't cover much so I'll take the job to explain their origins ٩(^◡^)۶

Keep in mind that some of the contents of this articles may have triggering references and spoilers of the show so if this is not a thing for you then do stay away from reading this (´◡`)

For today's article, we'll be back to relating the show's interpretation of supernatural beings and the actual lore or legend itself. This being may be kind... or not; depend on your thoughts. Today, we will be talking about Djinns or Jinn in Arabic. I'll be refering them as Djinns on how the show would refer and Jinns for their actual lore. So, sit back and relax while this is going to be a long ride~

In Supernatural, Djinns are humanoid creatures with tattooed skin (honestly, it was cool and I think it should be a trend somehow) that prefer to live in large ruins with a lot of places to hide. They feed on human blood and can poison their victims with a touch such their poison can be used either to kill their victims quickly, or to leave victims in a coma-like state while the djinn feeds on their blood over a long period of time - like a vampire with extra steps of course. When Djinn access their powers, either both their eyes and hands glow blue, or their tattoos move and extend down their arms. Another type of Djinn in the show are the Djinns who feed on human fear instead of their blood. The poison emmited from them didn't give them 'happiness'

The reason why I don't call Djinns as 'Genies' was that they aren't suppose to grant wish and read people's mind one what they wanted. Instead, they used their poisons to cause hallucinations on the victim by thinking they are living in the reality that the Djinn implanted. So this 'reality' or fantasy universe the Djinn uses, although it differs among the victims they have their own similarities which they belived to be their wish has been granted. Under the poison's influence, the victims will see other victims as apparitions. These fantasies are very detailed, to the point were they include a fantasy version of the Djinn who infected them, and their victims. The only way to escape from the fantasy universe, is for the person to commit suicide, in which case they wake up. However, if they die in the fantasy from anything other than their own hand, they will die in real life.

The Djinn poison antidote can be used to ward off the poison and the effects. To kill them, one should dip a silver knife in lamb blood or make extra damage on Djinn's brain. If you have an angel blade or some explosions, these can kill a Djinn as well.

And now, we're back to the real lore of Jinns. Like it was mentioned in the show, they are powerful, invisible beings, capable of possessing people and even inflicting suffering on them in the Quran. They are believed to be spirits in Islam, like angels and demons but it wasn't specified if they are either those two. There are good Jinns as well as bad ones too - as the bad ones are mostly compared with devils or Shaytan in Islamic beliefs. They are not only in a form of a human like in the show but they can take shape of an animal since they are just spirits but only temporary unless it is as their tribe's animal protector.

Jinns are made from 'smokeless fire' and was believed that they could control the elements and turn plots of land fertile. Since they are either good or bad, friendly or not - it is possible for magicians or wise men and women to gain power over a Jinn and use it to perform amazing and magical tasks or take revenge via a Jinn. Think about Aladdin's story in One Thousand and One Night tale or maybe Disney's adaptations works as well. One thing you should take from this article is that the 'actual' Jinns don't use their own poison to make people hallucinate - most spirits don't even have poison to begin with. The only way they can kill a human is when one is possessing a bad Jinn for them to take revenge on someone the owner did not like, as an example. To end the article as usual, below are illustrations of the Arabian Jinns!
